Fuchsias are pretty in the garden and make lovely earrings (just hook a French wire earring through the base of the flower...it's good to also brush off the pollen or nip the pollen tips off too).
Please, do not put honey, Jell-O, brown sugar, fruit, or red food coloring in your feeder! Honey ferments rapidly when diluted with water and can cause mouth sores and even kill hummingbirds. The red dye has NO beneficial ingredients, and it is not necessary to color the water to attract birds to your feeder. Further, there are unverified reports that red dye can cause tumors in hummers.
